GEci Karuri-Sebina is a Specialist Advisor in South Africa's Neighbourhood Development Programme (Budget Office: National Treasury, Republic of South Africa) and a Director of the South Africa Node of the Millennium Project.

Her interests are broadly foresight and R&D spanning a range of public policy, development, and innovation issues.


Before joining the Treasury, she was a Research Director at the Human Science Research Council's Centre for Service Delivery in Pretoria, and prior to that she was a Research Group Leader at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), before which she conducted action research and technology development at UCLA's Advanced Policy Institute.


Geci has undertaken contract work for the UNDP, guest lectured for the Universities of Western Cape, Pretoria, and Witwatersrand, and played advisory and review roles in several institutions including the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), CSIR, UNISA Centre for Corporate Citizenship, Meraka eSkills Institute, and South Africa's Department of Science & Technology.


Geci is actively involved in the futures study field which she champions through her role as a founding member and director of the SA Node of the Millennium Project, and more recently through regional foresight initiatives under the Cooperation Framework on Innovation Systems between Finland and South Africa.
